Subjects teaching leadership and management then you might need in your jobs in the Haas Center and we’ll teach you how to talk about your science and how to deliver a an oral presentation to your colleagues and to the public we’ll.
Teach you how to create and implement public health programs and how to understand health economics principle and have a design and analyze public health policy so this will depend on which subjects you do but all of this will deal with a vast array of these of topics so the first one is that we’ll talk a bit about is the master of health health health services we use customers and management the two-part masters and it focus on health business management.
And that’s kind of done by people who work in hospitals ministration or who want to have a career in that area the qual units of this you’re going to do about economics financial management you do a bit of lower health systems you do a little bit of Health Policy Kaushik do some subjects in the leadership and how to understand how systems work you learn about clinical government and you end up doing a a study in health services they’re the core unit and then you can.
Choose your electives from a whole wide range of areas research methods economics more leadership epidemiology and biases which of course I would encourage everyone to do that’s my area you’ll do some implementation and innovation in healthcare and learn about patient safety and there are some other units you could look at as well and every year.
We offer we develop new units to be contemporary with what’s going on in science so we just release those a unit on demography for next year which is going to be.
Quite interesting so the next market I’ll talk about is the Masters of Occupational Health and we breathe that back to Marco and today’s have been masters do 48 points with your call and another 24 points which involves a research project most people do this master’s already work in the area in some in some.
Kind of way as if like fashion a little doctor or in a business way that they’re the Ox National Health and Safety Officer so a metal how we encourage that master’s to run so this is run by a.
Really strong department which there’s.
A lot of professional health and safety the core unit here are of course you learn about occupational health and safety you learn about chemicals and hazards and you have caught up epidemiology and.
Statistics you don’t have a syphilis plates Heather assessed physical hazards you learn about safety and a psychological working environment and then you.
Get to choose some of the kids all you do the six months research stream and then we have the Masters of forensic science and that’s a smaller master’s so that’s an coming really popular and you learn how to apply science to a forensic medicine it’s obviously youngster you didn’t you can understand how.
Bushfires happen by putting evidence and identification of important evidence and on the right here you see identities did this masters and she became a forensic odontologist.
Now for the Masters of forensic science there are three strains clinical forensic medicine forensic medicine and the dental one and these are ideal for people who are called a medical degree identity degree biomedical science or nurses okay then.
We have what I could say would be.
The officially the harvest masters and that’s the masters of bio set that’s done purely all online it took quite a small masses but it’s really challenging and you have your core topics and your you have a research project at the end so to do this masters you have to be able to.
V numbers in your head there’s no doubt about that it’s challenging but we do offer this mathematical background for.
Biotech subjects when you do first up so you know what you need to know to run through.
The masters moving forward and again you have to do a course up it’s epidemiology and you do all these other statistical subjects and these are all varying in difficulty some of them are easier than others and then you can has do a research project as the part two and we have a master’s of clinical research this is designed for busy conditions and you’re going how to understand research and conduct research how to write projects and how.
To understand the research that’s going on around you in hospitals and the papers you’re reading and have master clinical measures medicine and business designed for people in the emergency work and emergency departments of.
The hospital and if the joint venture between the offer and one ash there are really good masters for medical graduates and they did play the clinical placement in busy trauma centers and it prepares senior clinical it prepares graduates for.
Sending a clinical and operational leadership roles so I often get asked what can I do after masters so there’s no job that says that’s directly telling you have a master’s of Public Health but people who have a master’s.
Of Public Health can work in the following areas so you’re working academia so you’re working research that you could working biostat health informatics public health if you do this in the right subjects you can look at Human Rights if you do the math is involved in occupational and environmental health you can do work in that area keep working policy health service management and delivery and health economics and forensics so for example you can.
Work with me in an epidemiology department you can work on a trial as a project manager or as an epidemiologist or as a data person on the trials you will have work at the Department of Health in.
Various departments in their policy or the epidemiology department or the health service management job you could work in pharma so you could be a medical way but.
Officer or you can work in reimbursement we’re good even with themselves and then you can work in all the NGOs like Heart Foundation.
Kinney Australia diabetes Australia we can do more health promotion kind of work so the biggest jobs coming out for graduates now and data orientated jobs and so if you want a job if you’re good with numbers you should do a master’s with and load up with sort of a data orientated subjects and you’ll get a really good.
Job at the data scientist or some kind of data analyst and that means you can work in sort of any place where they do analysis other students have finished have work places like MIDI back and bootcut and places like that so there’s lots of lots of ways to get into lots of different industries.
And the only advice I have for you was to make sure your master’s is a good one and make sure you get good scores in all your subjects and that will help you get a really good job and now I’m going to pass on to Deborah and then we’re going to ask you’ve any other opportunity to ask some questions and my name is Deb Rhodes and I’m currently working as an infection Preventionist.
Consultant at a large public health service in Melbourne and of my career spanning over three decades I’ve worked in a broad range of clinical specialties including intensive care operating theatres Executive and travel Health’s also worked in phase 1 clinical trials in humans.
And and I’ve always had a very very strong interest in patient and staff safety and also neglected diseases and most recently my work on the last decade I’ve been involved as an occupational health nurse where I’ve been immunizing healthcare worker population of staff in a large metropolitan Health Service and more recently moved into infection prevention and during this most recent role I’ve been able to coordinate through organizational wide.
Quality improvement projects to enhance patient safety within the clinical environment and it was through that work and that I became more aware that I didn’t have a.
Sufficient understanding of biostatistics and epidemiology and so we published a couple of papers in relation to our successful improvements and that that was an area where I thought was really lacking in knowledge so I decided to investigate how I could improve that knowledge and particularly in the realm of epidemiology of biostatistics and was fortunate enough to be accepted onto the Masters.
Of Public Health Program at Monash University and the best thing I’ve ever done and so those are the key things that I hope to achieve from completing the Masters of Public Health it was really to as Diana pointed out and become better equipped at being able to look at.
Statistics and read papers and to be able to weigh up the evidence in this evidence-based world that we live.
In and so through the studies which covered a lot of massive subjects beyond biostatistics and epidemiology so looked at did some work in the.
Research area and studied environmental influences on health climate change and and the economics of Public Health and it became really opened up the whole view of what healthcare is all about so the Masters gave me a lot more than just an understanding of biostatistics and epidemiology.
It really did give me a much deeper understanding of how the healthcare system works and also pointed out who is the most vulnerable within our community where improvement should really be directed so it certainly equipped me with skills and connected me with the.
Academic world and gave me a lot more confidence and it was really fantastic the way that the course was structured and because it was so broad.
Reaching and comprehensive and and it was fantastic.
